SCC Holiday Boutique & Pop-Up

A new opportunity to sell your craft for the holiday season!

Call for Holiday Boutique & Pop-Up 

Due Tuesday October 12 Deadline 

We currently have a pop-up shop on Broadway, across the street from our gallery. It featured the work for Art Now, and coupled with our Boutique, is attracted new buyers. This empty building (the former Foster Shoes) is available to us until the first week of January. We are going to use this opportunity to expand our Boutique, and to increase the amount of inventory we can make available to the public. We are offering each of you the opportunity to participate in this expanded boutique and our online shop.

What do you need to do?
Fill out the inventory sheet and sign the Boutique agreement by Oct 12. It’s important that you follow our timelines as there is a lot of work on our end to get inventory in our online store, and our management system.

Once completed, please email a copy to our Boutique Coordinators at saskcraftcouncil@sasktel.net
